New Surface Pro now up for preorder, including 1TB storage option

Microsoft's new Surface Pro won't be available until June 15, but you can now preorder yours at the Microsoft Store. Starting at $799, the Surface Pro is up for grabs in six different configurations, including a high-end option with 1TB of storage.

Surface Pro may look pretty similar to its predecessor on the outside, but there are a number of enhancements that make it stand apart. The most obvious upgrade is the move to Intel's seventh-generation Kaby Lake processors, but battery life has also been greatly improved with up to 13.5 hours of usage. The Core i5 version is also now completely fanless, while the Core i7 model now uses Intel's Iris Plus Graphics 640.

Other tidbits include optional 4G LTE support (due later this year), a redesigned kickstand that can open much wider, and slight exterior design tweaks.

The Surface Pro will launch in a total of 26 markets, and it's up for pre-order along with new Alcantara Type Cover colors and Surface Pens. If Microsoft's latest has your interest piqued, you can grab yours now starting out at $799 ahead of its June 15 ship date.
